Portrait #18 - Murphy

6 x 6 oil on panel
SOLD
I only received a couple pet photos for this project. I chose this one because of the wonderful light and shadow patterns. I painted Murphy on a red panel and let it show through in many places. I kept my brushes big and just had fun. What a great subject he is and I hear he is the sweetest of boys. He looks it!

    1. Thanks Meredith! I think letting the red ground peak through gives it some glow. Really worked for this one!
